Chocolopolis is the local Seattle store that introduced me to the world of artisan chocolate. In addition to selling a huge collection of extraordinary chocolate bars from around the world, they also craft some of their own flavored chocolate bars, truffles, and other chocolate confections.
They recently launched a kickstarter project to raise money for new chocolate molds and improved labeling and packaging.
Owner Lauren Adler and all her staff at Chocolopolis are passionate about chocolate, helpful with information and suggestions, and genuinely friendly people. I learned a lot about tempering chocolate from their chocolatiers, Nica and Sebastian Falcon. I hope you've had the opportunity to meet them yourself, but if not, you should know that they're a good group of people worthy of supporting.
If you'd like to join me in helping Chocolopolis and receive some nice rewards for doing so, or just get more information about the project and perks, check out their kickstarter page.
Also, don't miss the last few events of their fifth anniversary celebration this month. In particular, all day tomorrow (Monday, July 22nd) they will be selling their house-crafted chocolate bars for half price!
